It seems like you do not need to uninstall Skype. Just run the installer and uncheck "Skype Extras Manager".

A workaround for not re-installing Skype is to disable the Skype Extras Manager service from services.msc utility.

It seems there is no direct uninstall for it. You have to uninstall it entirely, then when you reinstall, uncheck the "Install Extras Manager" checkbox.
